11:22pm: But that's not my fault, I had an update all ready to go last night actually, but when I went to submit it, the internet decided to have a fit and not be connected so it didn't post! Then when I went back the update page nothing had been saved like it usually is and by that point it was nearly midnight and I didn't have enough time.

No need to despair though you didn't miss much, unless you think my tale of driving on a nearly empty fuel tank exciting. :OP It did get super low though! Of course, today as expected petrol prices had fallen, grumble grumble. so rude! Sometimes I feel like I should advertise when I get petrol because I can guarantee the very next day it'll be cheaper.

Anyway, moving on, not much excitement this week, in fact less exciting than usual because alas the time difference between here and Italy - where the last Junior Grand Prix event is been held means I haven't been able to watch any of it yet. Which is a huge shame because one of Plushy's students is there! I found out today that Plushy himself isn't there because he's with another student, but the skater in question, a young man, did totally awesome in the short program and is currently in the first! Apparently, he was thinking of quitting at the end of last season because he wasn't skating well and having problems with his jumps, but I certainly didn't see any evidence of that. How cool for Plushy and his team, you go, man!

So yeah, you know you've got an unexciting life when you have to write about someone else's LOL.

Oh, well, I did decided to make use of my fitness app to see how my eating habits are, since I've been gaining weight recently, unsurprisingly I've been eating too much, do'h! Not a lot, but enough so adds up. Guess I have a choc chip cookie eating problem, LOL. Hopefully I can figure out some healthier snack options, because I do get hungry.

Anywaaay, I better wrap this up because time is moving on and I do feel a bit sleepy, need to get the zzzs!

Hopefully I'll have something more exciting to report this weekend LOL.

But wait I almost forgot! This evening had some excitement so to speak - I was meant to meet Mum and Dad for dinner at the Golf Club for their cheap Friday eats. I ended up going to the parental house first to help Mum with purchasing something from E-bay where I found out poor Dad had gone to the Eye Hospital in the city because he was having vision issues! D:

Mum and I ended up going to the club - although it turned out it wasn't cheap fish and chip night, but we shared a regular priced one, LOL - during this time Mum called Dad and found out that his retinas are OK, although apparently he has to keep an eye (no pun intended!) on any further symptoms. He had to leave his car near the Mall and catch the bus into the city, so I drove Mum over to the car and Dad got the bus back so she could drive him back.

I meanwhile headed home, and who should pull up next to me, but my little bro going...somewhere. LOL this is like the first time I've ever randomly gone past him - and at first I didn't recognise him and thought some weirdo was waving at me from his car. But nope! Pretty neat, I must remember to mention that to the parental units.

Goodnight all!

11:19pm: Check out these guys! They're deep sea divers who work on gas rigs out in the North Sea and in order to do so they have to go into this special saturation chamber for the entirety of their work schedule so they can get acclimitised down there and not die. I didn't know this but you can't breath regular air down there, apparently nitrogen kills down there? So instead the mix oxygen with helium...hence everyone sounds like chipmunks.

IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE THESE GUYS SERIOUSLY!!! Like imagine if it was your first day in the control room and some guy had an emergency and you can't stop laughing. I guess you get used to it after a while, but still! Also I wonder if the divers can hear how funny they sound? Or does it eventually become normal to them and then when they come out everyone else sounds super looooow, 'cause that would be reversely amusing.

Anyway, moving on, today was a busy day! First there was work for Mrs S, then I returned my sandals to the shop and got a credit note, so I tried to find some sneakers. But I didn't find any there that caught my fancy, they've got other shops though, two in Dee Why so I'll try them tomorrow when I go to volunteer at the library.

After that I went to get some things for Mrs S from the hardware shop and then to a car shop - where I thought about getting a car cover to protect my car, but instead got some of this spray that's rain repellent, I sure hope it works!

Later on in the evening I went and picked up Mum who returned from her trip to see her friend, so it was great to see her again. :O) Also I drove past where my apartment is going to be built, it's been a few weeks since I've done so and wow they've done a lot, like demolish the whole building that was there! Nice. Except I need to bump up my savings if I'm gonna get the stamp duty!

Finally...the Australian Government apparently wants all our licence photos so they can follow us around with survillence cameras and shit. Which sounds pretty dodgy to me, I don't want the government being able to follow me around whenever they want!

Well, it's late and since I do want to go look for shoes tomorrow and have to work at the Mona Vale Library tomorrow as well I better head to bed so I can get enough zzzs I kind of didn't last night.

Goodnight all!

11:44pm: Well, I didn't actually see them, but this morning when I went out to my car to drive to Mrs S's (no public holidays off for carers, but double time so that's awesome) I found bird poo all over it! And I just cleaned my car last week too! What a bunch of jerks.

Now the land lords are back I can't just use their driveway whenever I want, although if finally occurred to me (after considering going to a local oval and looking for a tap, or moving Mum's car in order to wash mine over at the parentals) that I can simply ask if I can use the drive way so to wash my car. Duh!

Anywho, I asked and the answer was yes, so my car is looking nice and sparkly now, so nice :O) I'll have to hope the birds will stay away, I've been avoiding parking under trees mostly. Maybe it happened yesterday and I just didn't notice...I'm once again wondering if I should buy a car cover.

Well, apart from that I didn't do much today, apart from going to the shopping centre to see if I could get some new reusable shopping bags since my current ones are getting rather tatty. Alas, they seem to have gone out of fashion or something! The only ones I could find where like fifteen bucks each. No way am I paying that.

It's almost midnight so I should be off, I'm here at the parental premises as usual on a Monday night and I found some cupcake mix here which was partially used and I decided to make up the rest. I probably shouldn't have though, since Dad ate a bunch of them and he's meant to be eating healthily.

And on a final note, my thoughts are with the USA tonight after the horrible events in Las Vegas.

11:04pm: Yes, I'm afraid I do use more bandwidth then I thought I would because I've run out of it and now my internet provider has slowed my internet riiiight down to dial-up speeds! I could pay 10 bucks to get buy some more data, but with only four days left in the month I'm not sure if it's the best use of my money.

Although, there's more ice skating coming up this weekend! That being the case I should buy the data block sooner rather than later to get my money's worth. But I dunno...I have quite a bit of data left on my phone, but I'm sure it wouldn't last.

In other news, my bedside lamp's light bulb just decided to burn out and I'm pretty sure I don't have another one - which I was just discussing with Mrs S the other day. Grumble, grumble.

What else? Not much, had a shift at the library today, usually on Tuesday's the Duke of Ed school kids come by to do volunteer work thus meaning we have to leave the shelving to them, but it's school holidays so they're not in. Also there's currently a Where's Wally event going on in the library, which I decided to join in on, LOL. Not that I can actually enter, but I managed to find everything so yaaay.

Right, I better wrap this up because I need to go to bed, although I finally got some writing done, maybe I should leave the internet alone... :OP

But for the time being, I'm off!

Oh and I went swimming today with Mum at the Retirement Village's swimming pool, yaaay, always fun! And also washed my car before the landlord's get back, so I do feel very productive!

11:57pm: Well, clearly I left this update waaay too late, but I've been reading and procrastinating on my fanfic (OMG, me, get with the program!)

One thing I didn't procrastinate on at least was washing my car! Yes, the landlords have gone on holiday and while they're away I'm able to park in the driveway, which means I was finally able to use the garden hose. The only downside is I'm not entirely sure I cleaned the roof well enough, I should have got my step-stool (damn, my short self LOL) right from the start. Well, you live, you learn.

I also didn't procrastinate on going to the gym after Scripture Class today, yaay! The gym sure is busy on Wednesday afternoons. I guess people want to fight the mid-week slump.

In other news, Mrs S's mother henceforth known as Mama S arrived on Monday evening and I got to see her this morning. She's a really cool lady - over 90 and still active! Also, she bought me a present, which I totally need to get a photo of because it's sooo super adorable! It's a llama toy! Seriously, it's just too cute, I love it. I have christened it Fluffshenko, LOL.

Not much else to report, although the person who's taken over the Scripture class from Mum would appreciate my help (there are a lot of kids) so I guess I'll keep that up for a while.

For now, I better wrap this up and get my butt to bed! I got work and library volunteering tomorrow!

11:17pm: Indeed, they had a tendency to slip today when I went skating, which is never good, after all I don't want to fall on my ass!

This time I got there just as the session was starting and aaaah skating on new Zamboni-ed ice is the best! So smooooth!

Speaking of skating, Plushy decided to be the legend he is and resurrect his most famous exhibition program - a strip-tease (panic not, he wears a muscle suit!) to Tom Jones's Sex Bomb. It's as hilarious as it sounds. I'm a bit bummed I didn't try harder to go and see these shows as I'm pretty sure this exhibition piece won't happen again. On the other hand I'd probably die from the thrill/second-hand embarrassment :OP

Still the lesson is...Plushy is more awesome than you. :OP

What else to report? Well, I got my laundry done, a day late and the pizza base so I could make my pizza also a day late.

I'm also thinking I need to get more zzzs - this is a common refrain for me, but I was quite sleepy as I drove home from the ice rink today and you know...driving when sleepy is a baaaad idea.

Which is why I have to wrap this up because I need to get to bed soon and also because my brain is not functioning right now, LOL. I wish I had a clearer head though I want to write more on my fan fic! It's going pretty well, although I'm not entirely sure I've picked the right tense to write it - did I mention this before? I think I started with the present and I keep falling back to the past. Obviously I'm gonna have to check this over carefully if I finish it and put it up. :O)

Anyway, I better be off now, hopefully I'll have a more interesting entry tomorrow.

10:17pm: Well, I've finally heard back from the Office of State Revenue regarding the ticket I got for driving unregistered and they basically told me "Tough shit, pay up".

Fuck me...$650 down the drain. That's basically the cost of flying to Japan, seeing Plushy at a show (in a good seat no less!) and the flight back!

Not to mention like three weeks worth of savings for the apartment stamp duty and two and a half weeks rent. So yeah this is money I can totally spare.

They really need to put this shit on a sliding scale, because this a HUGE amount of money for me, whereas for someone else it'd be a bit of an inconvenience...I get that it's supposed to be a fine and everything, but they could be reasonable. :O/

The one saving grace of this whole mess is that at least the cop was nice enough not to give me a fine for being uninsured as well, otherwise I'd be looking at having to pay over $1000!!!

Fucking sucks.

In other news I'm feeling a bit glum because I've just discovered that one of my Tumblr friends now hates Yuri on Ice aka the figure skating anime. And now I'm a bit uncomfortable because I still love it and repost lots of fan-art of it on my Tumblr...I kind of want to say something to her over Twitter about it, but I have no idea what to say. I mean...I hope she doesn't look down on me for still liking it, but I don't even know? Plus she seems to have like valid reasons for not liking it...so now I'm questioning my own taste? But I don't know.

Well, we both still like birds and Plushy so I should stop being so dramatic, perhaps. :OP

And then there's been a huge blow-out in the real life figure skating fandom, which has caused a mass exodus of fans of a particular skater from the forum I visit every day. Man, I've never been involved in a fandom breakdown before. Not a pretty sight, let me tell you. It didn't involve Plushy though! (Although...I am reminded how I find out ages after the fact how the original Plushy fandom kind of imploded way back in 2006 when some of his original fans decided to be jerkasses and ended up hating the very person they once idolised! It was total BS...and way worse since you know, they were is actual "fans" rather than haters).

That was an unnecessary ramble there...

On the upside, I got my flu shot today! My arm is a bit sore, but the doctor was very nice and when I told him I was a disability worker arranged for me to get the shot for free! Also, I got my new script for my anti-depressant, except...they always give you five repeats...so I'm not going to need one when I go and see my psychiatrist later, which will no doubt cause all sorts of confusion.

Anyway, I better be off now, since I got up earlier than usual today. Poor Mrs S though, the bathroom issue at her house has caused a lot of trouble, the original builders of the place seem to not want to take responsibilty for screwing up with construction of the bathroom.

I sure hope that sort of shit doesn't happen in my apartment when (if?) it finally happens?

So yes, on that note, goodnight!

11:41pm: So it would seem! After a whole week of wet weather it's finally cleared up out there, and now it's almost gone back to summertime weather! I'm sweating here and have had to turn my air-con on. Only downside to that is it still seems to get cold in the late night so I have to grab the doona, but theeen when I wake up I'm all sweaty and gross.

And that's why spring and autumn are a pain in the ass sleepwise.

Moving along, I got the car registered today, I left it at the mechanics and it was ready to go when I finished work at Mrs S's (although for some reason they didn't answer the phone when I called to confirm that, so I was quite relieved when I got there and found out it was indeed ready.

Although my plan to go to Dee Why Library and the Medical Centre before my library shift didn't happen, instead I went after, but sadly...no sign of the Up. I guess I'll never know what happened to it. But if someone picked it up I hope they can at least use it. Meanwhile I've ordered a new Up and magnetic clip thing, although the former is sure to arrive before the latter, I guess the clip it comes with will be OK?

Moving on, the shift at the library went well, lots of books to return and patrons to assist, good times, good times. :O)

And time is getting away from me and I'm going to see my friend tomorrow so I must be off to bed now.

So I say goodnight!

10:57pm: OK, I might be exaggerating a bit on that, but during yesterday's and today's shifts my co-workers all made mention of my hair. I guess the hair cut I got is super stylish. All the same, it's a bit too short, I really must make sure the hairdresser doesn't cut it that short again, the sides keep falling out of my ponytail and trying to go up my nose! It sucks. :OP

Anyway, I ended up missing out on church today, I was planning on going this morning, but I was too slow in getting up and washing my hair and since I would need to catch the bus there I decided nah. Then this evening I called Dad to see if he was going to the 6pm service, but he's got a stomachache so he wasn't which would have necessitated stuffing around with Mum's car and yeah nuts to that.

However, I did manage to catch the wrong bus, it went the back way and while it was driving along I briefly considered going to church Dee Why (it is Lent after all!), but I'd have to take the bus back afterwards and it just seemed like it'd take way too long. So instead I got off at Narrabeen and walked home, stopping by the 7-11 to buy a sausage roll for dinner.

Not much else to report except I need to head to bed now because I'm getting up like half an hour earlier than usual so I can get my car to the mechanics. I'm slightly worried that my luck might continue to be shit and I'll end up not passing the safety check, but I'm sure I'm just being paranoid about that. I'm still worried about what will happen with the fine...for a brief moment I did think about begging the cop to let me off, but he did say he could have given me two tickets (the other for driving uninsured), but he only gave one, so I should be thankful for small favours. :O/ I'm not very hopeful at all that they'll cancel if for me. Suuuucks.

I should stop bitching now and hit the hay, tomorrow is going to be busy with both Mrs S and the library...wish me luck!

10:15pm: Well, at least I'm getting a good pun in, but in all seriousness this is so fucked up.

As you all know my memory sucks...and this time it's truly ruined my wallet.

I decided after watching the ice skating highlights on SBS that it was time to head to Macquarie Centre and get my skates on. So I'm driving when suddenly police car lights flash in my rearview mirror! I was surprised but thankfully had the presence of mind to pull over rather than keep driving like some of the idiots you see on RBT/ I thought maybe I was getting a random breath test, but after handing my licence over I discovered it was worse...much worse.

I had completely forgotten to register my car!

It expired last Saturday so for almost a week I've been driving around unregistered and uninsured! FUCK! How could this happen?! Why didn't I get a renewal notice?! Didn't I pay for it? (No that was my comprehensive insurance, which is a totally different thing).

The cop was very nice, but that didn't stop him from giving me a ticket for driving unregistered (although, he at least didn't give me one for being uninsured too).

A ticket for $650.

I'll type that out again for you in the back row.

SIX

HUNDRED

AND

FIFTY

DOLLARS
!!!

That's more than I earn in a week! That's nearly three weeks worth of savings towards the stamp duty for my apartment. Two and half weeks worth of rent.

It's an absolutely ENORMOUS amount of money! On top of the actual cost of registration and the CTP Greenslip (which is $900). Add to that the parking fine from a few weeks ago...and the speeding fine...my car is swallowing money like a monster. :'O(

I don't understand why this is happening! I've always been such a good driver! Now I'm speeding, illegally parking, scraping and driving unregistered like a complete loser.

What really kills me though is that for some reason, despite the fact I changed my address for my licence, Service NSW (which includes the Road Department) had my OLD address on file. How can that be?! Although as it turned out it doesn't look like the renewal slip came to my old place because I went there on my way home (I couldn't continue on to the ice rink :O( which was the cherry on top of a completely sucky cake) and the old landlord said he hadn't seen it.

So, the damn fuckers didn't even send it!! What the fuck?! The nice cop said I could ask for a review of the fine and see if they'd waive it, but I don't hold out hope...if they wouldn't take pity on me for speeding 7 minutes before I would have been going 20kms under the speed limit, I don't see why they would for driving unregistered and uninsured.

If the review fails you can take it to court, but like that'll happen! If I end up been found guilty I'd need to pay even MORE, and no way could I stand up in court and defend myself.

And here I was thinking the day was looking good because despite having forgotten to take my lunch with me to work I found my nurse's watch! It was on the shelf in the Returns Room of the library where I put my stuff, it must have fallen out. I was so glad to see it again!

However...that watch cost $7, so...it all pales in comparison.

And to top it all off? Because my car is more than five years old, it needs a safety check before I can register it. And absolutely no mechanic in the area is open on Sunday, there's no way I can register my car until Monday. I have no idea how I'm going to achieve it...I've got a shift at the library on Monday afternoon, so I'm not sure if catching a bus to Mrs S's and then back to the house to get the car and taking the car to my mechanic for the check will work because I'll only have 1.5 hours between Mrs S and the library. Although when I type it out like that....

On the other hand I feel like I need to get this looked at as soon as possible, apparently the check can take 15 minutes, but it all depends, it could end up been 40 minutes. If that happened in the 1.5 hours I'd be stuffed because the shift doesn't end until 6pm when the mechanic would be closed, so how would I even get my car?

So I guess on Monday morning I'll get to the mechanic's at 7:30 - Google says he opens at 8am, but who knows maybe he'll open early.

The thing is, I don't want to tell my parents about this...there's nothing they can do about it and even if they lent me money I'd have to pay it back so it's not like I'd save any money. However...Sunday night is when I usually go over there, but obviously I can't do that, even worse I can't go to church with Dad (either in the morning or the evening) because there's no way to get there by public transport (or at least not without catching two buses). But I'm a creature of habit so what am I meant to say? Although it's just occurred to me I could simply tell Dad (Mum will be away at a hotel) that my car's out of rego so I can't drive it without mentioning the supreme fuck-up that was the fine. I guess that'll have to do.

The other big disappoint is that I was supposed to see my grandparents' and little bro tomorrow morning (to thank the former for the money to go on the cruise and to finally give the latter that huge Ferrero Roche I got just after Christmas and which goes off at the end of this month), but obviously I can't drive there either. I rang the little bro to tell him my woes (he's had fines himself so he was most sympathetic) and he did offer to come and pick me up and even drive me to work, although we hadn't actually asked M and Grandpa if they were available for tomorrow so he called them up to ask, but they haven't got back to us yet, so who knows what will happen there.

Oh...and lastly, my activity tracker is still MIA, I called the library, but it wasn't in lost property, but then again...it's hard to describe, also the shelves are magnetic so maybe it's stuck to one of them. As for the Medical Centre, they didn't answer the phone so I have no idea if it could be there. I was planning to go there tomorrow to look, but...can't do that.

Okay then...let's wrap it up here, I still have my Russian to do.

Goodnight.

11:42pm: So in the daylight this morning the car didn't look nearly as bad as I feared, although the scratches are still most unfortunate. My poor poor car. I did actually try to use my auto paint to cover them, but I dunno how well that'll work, however, I'm in no position to spend any money fixing it, especially with the letter I got today.

Yes, when I got home from Mrs S's and the Warriewood Square and saw the envelope in the mailbox my spirits lifted! Until I picked it up and felt how light it was and then saaw it was from the Office of State Revenue.

They didn't overturn my speeding ticket! What a bag of dicks, I have sped one other time during my whole driving life (and there were no cops or cameras around soo they don't know that), it was 7 minutes before the school zone time ended and the fact that $180 is a financial burden on me (more than a shift's worth) fell on deaf ears. What a fuck-up.

Obviously, I'll have to pay it since I'm certainly not going to court to argue about it - it'd cost me even more money and time.

So yes,not the best of luck there.

However! Because my place wasn't very tidy and Mum had to go shopping for some stuff, as well as it being unseasonably warm today instead of coming over to the Granny Flat, we went to Warriewood Square where I finally found a pair of shorts suitable for work (it only took going to just about every clothing shop in the place!) and got my medication - which I hadn't been able to purchase before because my low-income card has expired so now I have to pay the full subsidised price, which is $26.

Note to self I owe Mum $150 all up now...but hey! The shorts were only $12, nice.

Right, better wrap this up and hit the hay, I've got a library shift and volunteering tomorrow so I need my zzzs!

Goodnight all!

PS Oh I almost forgot, I had the weirdest dream last night - I was on a cruise ship with my two brothers, my parents and another person I didn't know. Although shit got rather weird when Dad seemed to be drunk or something yelling at people and my brothers, the mystery person and I couldn't find our muster point during the drill.

11:17pm: Don't you hate it when some bad luck completely shits on your day? Because that's what happened to me, in the form of scraping the bottom of the driver's side of my poor Green Machine when I was trying to get out of a parking lot. Fucking parking lots, I swear to God, they hate me. :O( What a mess! It's not super bad, in fact you'd have to be quite close to it to see it, but I know it's there and there's a bit of dent. :O( Suuucks.

Also, the bloody ants have come back, I guess it's my own fault for not properly cleaning the oven pan I used to make marinated chicken legs last night. I mean I rinsed it and gave it a scrub, but obviously not good enough. I almost had a heart attack when I saw the little buggers this morning, I hate ants! I thought I got rid of them, but when I went over to the sink to fill up my water jug I saw them again. Ick.

But, as I indicated it wasn't all a bad day, firstly I got called in for a shift at the library, yay! Money! And I also finished up at Mrs S's in time to go to the gym (which I had planned to do before I got the call) although it was a bit of a close thing! I didn't get a chance to look for any shorts. I did go to K-Mart looking for some after I finished work, but it would appear it's too late, everything there is autumn/winter clothes. So now I have to wear my good shorts again tomorrow, dang.

I've also just remembered that I've forgotten to call the Red Cross which I really have to do before Friday to stop my donations. Because I can't really afford it.

Anyway, I better head off now, more work tomorrow! Plus I have to do my weekly clean-up in preparation for Mum visiting! I have admittedly let the place go a bit. I'm so lazy.

11:25pm: Damnit, despite having cleaned the kitchen sink and whatnot any time I leave something out that's not completely rinsed and cleaned off a hoard of motherfucking ants invades! Now I guess this just means I should clean everything up, but I did rinse it pretty well...and my dishwasher was full so I couldn't put the saucepan in there.

Also, I'm most annoyed by the fact my ant baits don't seem to be working. Although...maybe they've just run out of...er...poison stuff, I think they only last for three months and I've had them for longer than that. Or maybe I should try and get the spray...

Except, I haven't got my card yet, so right now I only have fifteen bucks or so to my name at least until the bank card arrives or I go to the bank to withdraw cash. Except, I don't think I'd be able to get to said bank, it is open on Saturdays' but I'm pretty sure if closes before I finish work.

Anyway, I'm sure you don't really care about ants...but I don't have much more to say...except I made a bit of a mistake today when I was doing the laundry - I forgot about my car key in my pocket so it went through the machine! No wonder there was so much noise! I think the key has survived, the little light on it still goes off when I press the buttons. Also, I have just remembered that unlike my mother's car key I can still use this one like an actual key so even if it is dead or the battery is screwed up I can still get in my car to drive to work tomorrow!

Speaking of which, I've totally stayed up too late this week which is really no good for me, so I should actually get to bed at a reasonable hour tonight! And this time I still have to finish up on my Russian before I turn in! So...

Goodnight all!

11:47pm: I refer to the Spit Bridge, which opens a few times per day to let boats go through from one part of the harbour to the other. Thing is, I'd forgot what time it opens and it turned out that 11:15am was one of them, which meant...I got stuck waiting as I tried to get to the pyschiatrist's office for the 11:30 appointment.

Suffice to say I was late, booo, which kind of put an end to thoughts of catching the last of the lunchtime ice skating session.

Speaking of ice skating, I got a reply from the cruise line, who told me they did not recommend taking my own skates on board because blades longer that four inches are not allowed on board. I mentioned this to my pyschiatrist, who encouraged me to write back mentioning how even though there's complimentary hire skates available, if you've got your own pair its much easier to use them and the email didn't straight out say it was forbidden only not recommended. He spoke about the need for assertiveness, and I have to admit I am rather a push-over, which makes me wonder...maybe that's why I'm not getting jobs, I'm not expressing enough confidence.

Speaking of jobs though...I got an unexpected phone call today, they're doing interviews for the Inter-Library Loan Officer's position and I have an interview next Tuesday! How exciting! Fingers and toes crossed everyone!

I also had to make an unexpected trip to the doctor because my referral for the psychiatrist had ended, and without one I don't get any money back from Medicare, that was a bit of a pain but I did make some purchases including a purple shirt! It's pretty much the same colour as the one I made! It has weird sleeve though, I'm not entirely sure how to work them out to be honest...hope I can though. Although I did tell myself I'd make my own purple shirt... I wasn't going to buy it, but I needed to spend an extra two bucks to use eftpos at Lifeline and I'd found some pinstriped pants that were $6 and this milk jug in the shape of chicken for $2.

However, I kind of made a mistake with the pinstripe pants...they're size 16! For some reason I thought they were size 8s and perhaps the reason they were in a second hand shop was because they were mislabled. But nope, so suffice to say they're a bit too big. Whoops. Ah well, I guess I could just give them away, it's only 2 bucks loss.

Right, better haul butt now, it's almost midnight and this Moose needs sleep!

11:36pm: Well, at least somewhat as I'm writing this from the little bro's apartment, or I suppose I should call it my apartment. I decided to spend the night here after bringing over some more things including the kettle and giving notice (along with Mum) at the office of the agent that manages the Granny Flat. I'm hoping to practice the drive to Mrs S's place a few times before I move in completely just before going on the cruise.

However, this means I need to wake up half an hour earlier and thus I need to be in bed half an hour earlier...so I'll pretty much have to wrap up this entry here because I'm all ready late and when I don't get enough sleep a few days in a row I tend to get sleepy and headachey. In fact I all ready have a headache now, but that could be from being a bit dehydrated. The little bro doesn't keep a jug of cold water in the fridge here!

Anywho, this night has gone quite well, with the little bro and I hanging out in the living room watching the tennis, as I wrap this us Rafa's still on court, but alas, I can't stay up to see how it ends. Also our last Australian singles player is out, boo.

Right! Really gotta head off now. I'll have a more detailed report about the apartment next time.

Oh! And I ended up buying the green backpack, because I'm worth it. :OP

Goodnight all!

10:44pm: I've got the photo of my dress that I wore on Sunday! Not through Photobucket that's still acting-up, but here's the link, which will hopefully work! What do you think of the shoes? Like I said 10 bucks from K-Mart.

Moving along, guess who popped in today to pick up something...Mum! Ha, figures. Although, I've been keeping the place pretty tidy so I was able to make it look pretty decent by the time she arrived. I even got to show her my new folding style, it is indeed looking mighty fine. :O)

Anywho as this morning I headed off to the Mall to do some Christmas shopping. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any 60s cocktail music, dang. I tried looking up the flower bloom thing on my mobile, but its battery was running out again plus there's no nursery in the Mall so I wouldn't have been able to get it anyway.

I did get Mrs S's coffee machine, although for some reason they only had red colour ones left, which is weird because the one Mrs S took a photo of was silver, but even when the cashier looked it up in other shops...only red. I still bought even though Mrs S really wanted it in silver, but it's very fancy and looks like it'll be easy to use so....

I did buy my little bro's gift and after some hunting about managed to find a picture book about Australian animals for my niece, but I still need to get something for the big bro, Eri, Mum and Dad. Which has made me realise I have no idea what Eri would even like! I'll have to ask the big bro about that.

After getting home I did some laundry before heading off to the gym and I planned to wash my car, except someone had parked in the spot right outside the house so I couldn't because the hose will only stretch so far. However, as Mum was leaving we found that the car had left so the washing was on!

And of course...not too long after I finished up there was a thunderstorm, grumble, grumble. I have found that generally if you wash your car before it rains the rain doesn't leave spots all over.

After the storm things took a different turn when Mum called to remind me about the contracts for the Newtown parking spot and the studio apartment. I was meant to sign them - one in front of a witness so she can take them to the solicitor some time and that time is tomorrow! So, I ended up going over there for that, the big bro had one of his friends over and she was nice enough to be the witness. I also got to see the niece, she seemed very intrigued by my stripey green shirt and green watch, LOL, perhaps she'll love green too! :O)

Still haven't picked her up, but I did giver her hug and even read The Hungry Caterpillar to her, but I don't think she was all that interested LOL. I love the Caterpillar though. :O)

Ah bugger I'm recording Cold Case but the storms have come back and interfering with the antenna. Damn, hope I have this episode, but I guess it'll come back on.

Right, I better wrap this up, work is on tomorrow so I better not stay up too late.

Goodnight all!

11:58pm: And I totally meant to go to bed early because I was so sleepy today! In fact, it ended up been a rather dangerous as I almost drifted off when driving back from my psychiatrist appointment! Like I ended up drifting out of my lane a bit! O.o Obviously I should have pulled over before that and rested up or something.

As it was I ended up taking a nap before heading off to the gym.

Yeah, I have no idea why I was so sleepy, maybe it was how bad the traffic was this morning! I ended up being fifteen minutes late to the appointment. Not only was the traffic terrible, I kept getting all the red lights, seriously? What the Hell? How does life always know?! :OP

But the traffic really was bad, bad enough that it made it onto the news! Having said that, it was on the other side of the bridge, but Sydney traffic does tend to have a domino affect. So it was a good thing Mum didn't come over this afternoon because I wouldn't have got back until 2pm and then as I said I was tired as Hell.

Anyway, I better head off, and chalk this up to another case of short entry syndrome. But, I did send in my application for the job although I didn't get a chance to speak to the contact person...sometimes she comes in on weekends though so maybe I'll see her then.

Right, I'm off to bed now, goodnight all!

11:15pm: The Australian Figure Skating Nationals that is! We're getting to the tail end of proceedings now which means skaters I'd recognise are doing their programs. The short programs were today, but alas I got rather busy with getting the new tyres, then going to the gym and my volunteering at Dee Why Library. I guess I can just watch it back later on (the videos are saved, I think, I hope!), but I best remember to watch it tomorrow! Although, it kind of messes up my timing for going to the gym tomorrow. I'm still trying to figure that out though, because after cardio today I should be doing strength training, but I've still got those rather nasty bruises on my legs. They're in a bad spot for the weight-lifting so when I do the lifting I'll probably whack myself right in the bruised area!

Ah, I dunno.

Anyway, as mentioned I got the new tyres and I was pleased to find contrary to my belief I got to keep my sporty hubcabs. I guess it makes sense after I spoke to Mum about it this evening when she called, I'm not sure I ever had a car long enough to need to replace the tyres, but I always thought you got a whole new wheel. But nope.

Oops, I've just noticed the time, I've let myself get distracted - again! - so I better head off! Here's hoping my air-con can stand the heat tomorrow - I thought it had broken down earlier today, but thankfully it seems to be OK now. Fingers cross.

And now I say goodnight!

11:33pm: On my Blu-Ray DVD recorder! I'm transferring some of the programs I've recorded on it - Air Crash Investigation episodes and one recording is five hours long! WTF? Now unless there was a marathon of episodes that's like four hours of some other show I didn't want to record. Man, can't believe I didn't notice that, I've been missing the end of shows and so on for a few weeks now because I haven't been able to find room. Rude.

Moving along, Mrs S and I went to Mobility shop today, but alas, the chap there said he wouldn't be able to sell Mrs S's old manual wheelchair for very much money, so we need to put it up on Gumtree. I hope it works, it's hard to tell with Gumtree, I don't think my parents have sold their old coffee table yet.

After returning Mrs S's wheelchair to her house I headed back to my place to get down to cleaning! However, Mum never showed up! I was going to call, but I kept putting it off and now it's too late. I wonder what happened? Perhaps she got called into work, although it's odd she didn't call me or at least send me a text.

Oh well, at least I got the place cleaned up, some more needs to be done, but things are quite neat now. :O)

Anywho, I did at least do one other thing today, and that was arrange to get my new tyres, they're not Advanti ones, but they are sports tyres so hopefully they look nice. More importantly though they're the same size as the current ones, I'm not sure if it would make a huge difference but I imagine having a change in height would be quite strange.

So yes I need to get up sooner rather than later for that, so it's off to bed with me now.

Goodnight all!

10:47pm: It's really messed up to be honest...the person who's passed away isn't famous or someone I personally know, but one of the administrators of the Official Plushenko Forum, where I get my daily news on Plushy related sheninigans. It's very sad, and came out of left field! I think she must have had an illness of some sort.

So the Plushy fandom is quite sad about this, Plushy himself even posted condolences. So, it's a big thing.

Makes one feel a bit grim.

I was still feeling off in the abdominal area today, but thankfully it seems to have settled down, fingers crossed this continues because tomorrow evening there's a work function that I RSVPed for and it'd be a shame if I didn't get a chance to go.

Also the latest episode of the figure skating anime was on today! There's only five episodes left now - or is it four? So things are coming to a head. I wonder what's going to happen? I am a bit bummed that I can't afford to buy these really cute pillows of the show's three main characters. They're so cute! But aside from being too expensive they're also way too big so alas...

In other news, I took my car in for its service today and bizarrely enough the mechanic said I need to get my back tyres changed, but no mention of the front ones - even the one with the little chunk missing. How weird! But it sounds rather serious - one of them is balding a bit and could be contributing to a strange noise the car is making. So there's a cost for me, not sure how I'm going to cover that...I wonder if I should ask for a gift certificate to a tyre shop for my Kris Kringle gift!

And lastly because it's getting late, I'm most disappointed that I didn't realise my lack of cheese slices, because I didn't have enough to make lasagna! I hope the mince will be all right for lunch tomorrow. I'm sure it will be.

And now, I must be off! (Oh! I did of course go to the library for my volunteering today, the two co-ordinators were giving a talk at an old folk's home, but they left instructions for me and there were cupcakes in the kitchen so that all worked out very well!)

Goodnight all!
